Q  How is Easy ROR Pro different from Easy ROR?
Both programs calculate Internal Rate of Return for portfolios or portfolio groups.  Easy ROR Pro adds GIPS® Time-Weighted calculation methods (necessary for GIPS-compliance).  Time-Weighted methods neutralize the effects of cash flows, thus measuring the performance of the money manager rather than the investor.  Easy ROR Pro also adds Benchmarking with indexes (or custom blended indexes) which Easy ROR Pro automatically downloads.  Easy ROR Pro also calculates Volatility, Beta, and other measures of Risk/Reward, and adds other features for professional use, like customized report headers, client information, etc.  Easy ROR and Easy ROR Pro require identical data input.

Q  What is GIPS?  Is Easy ROR Pro GIPS-compliant?
GIPS® (Global Investment Performance Standards) is the global standard for performance reporting administered by the CFA Institute.  If you're a professional, offering GIPS compliance is becoming increasingly important and will gain you a significant competitive advantage; in fact, prospective clients will likely expect you to be GIPS-compliant in the near future.  Calculations using GIPS methodology (provided by Easy ROR Pro) are required for such compliance.  Software programs such as Easy ROR Pro cannot claim "GIPS compliance", only firms with assets under management can.  Easy ROR Pro can only help you claim GIPS compliance if you use it correctly in accordance with GIPS (links to GIPS guidelines are provided in the program).  Full GIPS compliance involves many requirements of which calculation methodology is only one.  See our Resources page for links to learn more about GIPS.

Q  What makes Easy ROR Pro better than other performance calculators?
Easy ROR Pro provides all Time-Weighted calculation methods required by GIPS (not just one) and many others which are recommended by GIPS.  It uses daily-weighted methods, not outdated mid-point methods, and meets the 2011 standards.  Easy ROR Pro only requires portfolio balances, deposits and withdrawals to make these vital calculations; it does not require any information regarding internal portfolio activity such as positions, trades, dividends, etc.

Q  What is the cost for Easy ROR Pro?
There is only a one-time fee to purchase a software license.  Minor updates can be downloaded from our website for free until the next version is released.  After that, you can optionally upgrade to the latest version for an upgrade fee at your discretion at any time in the future.  We release new versions approximately once a year.  Your license includes free email and telephone technical support (see our terms).  You must purchase a separate license for each installation if you will have multiple users.

Q  Is there a discount for multiple licenses?
Yes.  You get 20% off each additional copy purchased within the same order.

Q  Can Easy ROR Pro be networked on a server?
You can direct multiple instances of Easy ROR Pro to use a single data store which can reside on a network, but only one instance can access the same data file at a time (multiple users can access different data files simultaneously).  You will need to purchase a separate license for each Easy ROR Pro installation.

Q  Can Easy ROR Pro import my data?
Easy ROR Pro can import data from a comma-delimited text file.  If you can export the data required by Easy ROR Pro to a text file, you can easily tell Easy ROR Pro how to read it.
